Question about Ford Laser
Posted by Anonymous on
It is traditional to send the head out to be machined to make it very flat. You would need a new head gasket and new bolts in order to torque it properly. Bolts always stretch a little so it is not wise to reuse old bolts. Parts and labour... It's not likely cheap. It may actually be cheaper to get a used engine from the junkyard. Get an estimate

SOURCE: head gasket blown
there are many was a head gasket can blow . sometimes they just leak to the outside sometimes they leak to the coolant and then it blows out your antifreeze. if you have a blown head gasket you will see it when you pull the head. and yes you should hace the head checked at a machine shop and install with a new head set never reuse a gasket .

SOURCE: blown head gasket
I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick
